Tight shot of the outer door hinge during preliminary assembly. By butting the brass hinge up to the base of the retract, you can be assured of being parallel and in same plane as the axis pin for the retract. The smaller plywood piece under the hinge is a height adjustment for the door to be level with the bottom of the wing. The larger plywood cross piece serves as a mount for the hinge as there is nothing there to begin with. Also note the plywood “wedge” under the upper half of the hinge to offset the door with the slope of the wing toward the leading edge. Note the wide cutout around the retract base. This area is closed off with lithoplate sheet later.
